Shepherds or Hirelings?

Would you let your 9-year-old children attend 2 churches (ie. Islamic and Christian) at the same time? Should Christian pastors call parents to get their children out of the humanist schools where the worldview is consistently materialist and, well, humanist? Is sending your children to public school a salient sin of the day? Kevin Swanson points out that Richard Baxter, Augustine, Martin Luther, and others were really down on humanist-based education and “common” schools.
